Melbourne father Duncan McLeod, 36, told a woman he met on Tinder about the sexual fantasies he had with and in front of children
A father who told a woman he met on Tinder he fantasised about having sex with children was caught after his wife found his vile messages on his smart watch.
Duncan McLeod, 36, from Preston in Melbourne’s north, said he dreamed about sexual acts with a child after matching with her on the platform, a court heard.
McLeod – who also revealed his fantasy of having sex in front of children – was given child abuse material by another woman he met on the dating app Oasis.
His now ex-wife found some of his depraved messages on his Apple Watch and reported him to police.
McLeod pleaded guilty to possessing child abuse material and was given a 24-month community correction order at Melbourne Magistrate’s Court on Friday.

His lawyer asked for no conviction to be recorded as such a ruling could harm his ability to find a job.
McLeod expects Services Australia – with whom he recently found a job – to terminate his contract, The Preston Leader reported.
His counsel also told the court he and his current partner wanted to have a baby through IVF treatment.
McLeod – who the court heard had issues with alcohol and gambling – claimed the fantasy he told the woman on Tinder about was ‘derived from a dream’ but the act didn’t actually arouse him.

‘The act is disgusting, it didn’t turn me on,’ he said.
‘I don’t actually want it to happen, it never actually happened.’
Magistrate Felicity Broughton refused to drop the conviction and told the 36-year-old to carry out 100 hours of unpaid community work.
